Allies Squeeze V.C. in A Sbau Valley
SAIGON South Vietnamese troops have swept into
the southern part of A Shau Valley as U.S. air cavalrymen

Slightly lifting security wraps on the operation that
opened April 19, officers in Da Nang on the coast 50 miles
east of the valley said the South Vietnamese ran into light
resistance on entering Monday.
Troops of the U.S. Ist Air Cavalry Division reported
little opposition in the first three days of the operation, but
security has prevented any report on their progress since.
The lack of resistance indicated that the main North

Elderly Heart Transplant Patient Dies
PARIS A 66-year-old French grandfather, the oldest
man to undergo a heart transplant, , died - yesterday 51 1 / 2
hours after he received a now heart. The doctors who
grafted it said the patient's age had been a major problem.
Clovis Roblain, a retired truck driver called "Pop" by
his friends, succumbed to an insufficient flow of blood to
the brain, never regaining consciousness after a nine-hour
operation Saturday night, doctors at La Pitie Hospital said.
They had given Roblain, who suffered a cardiac attack
last year, the heart of Michel Gyppaz, a 23-year-old metal

LBJ Urges World Money Approval
WASHINGTON President Johnson launched a drive
yesterday for a quick U.S. ratification of a plan for paper
gold the first basic change in international currency in
more than two decades.
- In a special message to Congress, Johnson said the
United States,- as a leader in the five years of negotiations
which led to the plan, should be one of the first nations to
He called the plan a landmark and a historic step and
said failure to approve it "could turn the clock backwards to
the dark days of restrictive economic policies, narrow in
terests, empty ports and idle men."_
If ratified by 65 nations with an 80 per cent weighted
vote in the International Monetary Fund the agreement will
represent the first basic change in IMF operations since the
Fund was established by the Bretton Woods conference
The new money would take the form of a bookkeeping
entry on government and IMF books and would be called
officially a Special Drawing Right, or SDR in the Fund.
Individual citizens would never see it.
Shafer, Nixon Hail Rocky's Decision
HARRISBURG Gov. Shafer said yesterday Nelson
Rockefeller's decision to campaign for the Republican pres

Party and the nation."
"This is going to be an exciting year," Shafer said.
"We will have, all the issues discussed in full."
Standing at his side as he welcomed Rockefeller into
the race was former Vice President Richard Nixon, re
garded as the front runner for the GOP nomination.
Nixon had scheduled a luncheon meeting with Shafer
to discuss Republican unity prior to Rockefeller's announce
ment from Albany, N.Y.
Nixon said he believed Gov. Nelson Rockefeller's entry
into the Republican presidential race would benefit the
country by providing a healthy debate on the issues of
However, Nixon said he still was confident he would
win the GOP nomination. -
Shafer said Rockefeller's decision confirmed the wis

swelling their ranks to more than 1,000. Four
fire engines were parked one block away in
front of the Cathedral of Saint Joan the
Devine. The administration had been silent
for more than eight hours.
It was time for the "bust."
The violence that followed, as the stu
dents were forcibly evicted from the build
ings by the police, has been described widely
in the press. It is doubtful whether anything
else could have been expected from the
police, who had been taunted and ridiculed
for five days, and students who were reso
lutely convinced of the justice of their cause
and foolish enough to think they could beat
off the police.
Today students are on strike and banned
from entering their own campus. The school's
faculty has asked that the day be one of
meditation and reconciliation for students,
faculty and administration.
But the issues which caused the six-day
crisis have not been solved. There are two
issues which must be dealt with before peace
can be restored to Morningside Heights. They
are questions of student power and black

The students are angry simply because
they have no say in the running of the Uni
versity. The gym and IDA would not have
been issues, many argued, if the students and
faculty, not the administration, established
Columbia's policies. For the issues, in that
case, would not have existed.
Students' desire for amnesty confirms
this. Columbia has stopped the construction
of the gym at Mayor Lindsay's request and
the political roadblocks and public pressure
which now oppose it make it doubtful that it
will ever be built.
The IDA has been the victim of general
feeling at most universities against secret
government agencies. The recent controversy
has made IDA activities public, creating
widespread resentment. It will be no surprise
if these relations are soon severed.
However, in the end, the students were
still not satisfied, because they did not feel
they deserved punishment for using admit
tedly illegal means to end what they con
sidered an immoral policy. The students who
held the buildings were asking the university
to make student power legitimate and the

The second issue, however, is much more
complex and is one facing the entire urban
community of the nation. It is the question
of what should be the policy of an elite white

black neighbors in Harlem.

expected to evict all students occupying

No More Charity
But the black community no longer
wants charity. Negroes want recognition as

from the cliffs of Morningside Heights. They
view the gym as an attempt by Whitey to
push himself into the black community and
steal black land.
However, the problem goes much deeper
than the gym. The university has repeatedly
refused to allow its laborers to unionize.
Many of the workers are from Harlem.

homes in the campus area. Many of these
homes are occupied by blacks who are forced
